The Best of Central Europe: Italy and Austria

The Lifelong Learning Program introduces a travel study program this fall focusing on Italy and Austria. Highlights of the November excursion include a tour of Milano and Venice, Italy; a cruise on Lake Maggiore; sightseeing in Busseto, Italy, hometown of composer Giuseppe Verdi; a walking tour of Salzburg, Austria; dinner at the Salzburg Castle; a performance of Mozart’s “Magic Flute” at the Vienna Opera; and a pre-Thanksgiving meal with Lipscomb students in Vienna.

The global travel Certificate in European Studies program combines traditional Lifelong Learning classroom work with global travel will complete two five-week courses prior to the travel portion of the program. These courses begin Aug. 28 and Oct. 9. John Parker, recently retired professor of English, and his wife, Jill, recently retired professor of chemistry, will host the trip and teach the prerequisite courses.

The two prerequisite classes are $60 each. The travel portion of the program cost begins at $4,286 and includes airfare, accommodations, activities and some meals.

Lipscomb Lifelong Learning offers people of retirement and semi-retirement age an opportunity to expand knowledge and explore new ideas in an informal, noncompetitive environment.
